The Civil War Monitor, Fall 2018

The Civil War Monitor, Fall 2018

The Civil War Monitor, Issue #29

Five things we learned while producing this issue:

  1. The Surratt House Museum in Clinton, Maryland, will take you on a tour of the escape route that John Wilkes Booth took following his assassination of President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, DC. (p. 6)

  2. We learned what a tenaculum is. So, what is it? You don’t want to know. (p. 18)

  3. A Confederate cipher disk, used for encrypting and decoding messages, was recently sold at a Cincinnati auction for a cool $18,000.

  4. At the end of the war, Capt. Edward H. Mix of the 16th Connecticut was making his way back home aboard a transport ship when a “blow from the boom struck him and propelled him overboard, where the burden of his coat and heavy boots caused him to drown before help could reach him.” (p. 50)

  5. There were approximately 252,354 non-combat deaths during the Civil War. (p. 49)
